    Internal branding and sustainability: investigating perceptions of employees2016Ingår i: Journal of Product & Brand Management, ISSN 1061-0421, ISSN 2, Vol. 25, nr 3, s. 296-306Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to investigate perceptual differences between employees characterized by various levels of internal brand commitment and sustainability importance. The study was conducted among employees of industrial companies operating in Belarus. 238 responses were analyzed by using the K-means cluster analysis. The ANOVA was applied for evaluating differences between the three identified clusters. Based on internal brand commitment and sustainability importance, the study identifies three alternative clusters of employees: (1) uncommitted sustainability laggards, (2) committed sustainability followers, and (3) committed sustainability leaders. The results show that the three clusters differ in regard to the main determinants of internal brand commitment, which are brand orientation, internal brand knowledge, and internal brand involvement. The findings demonstrate significant perceptual differences between the three clusters regarding their evaluations of a company’s sustainability performance. The assessment of sustainability performance focuses on sustainability objectives, sustainability policies, and sustainability decision-making and disclosure. The study makes a theoretical contribution to research on internal branding and sustainability by examining the potential interrelationships between internal branding strategies and sustainability performance.

    Sustainability and internal brand commitment: An empirical investigation in a transition economy2015Ingår i: EMAC 2015: Collaboration in Research, EMAC , 2015, s. 158-158Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The successful implementation of sustainability initiatives throughout a company can positively influence business performance, especially in complex conditions of transition economies, such as Belarus. Nevertheless, prior studies provide limited evidence regarding the relationships between employees’ perceptions about company’s sustainability performance and the relevant determinants of their behavior. The main purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of company’s sustainability performance on employees’ job satisfaction, work meaningfulness and consequently their internal brand commitment in a transition economy. The findings demonstrate significant causal effects between the four dimensions of sustainability performance, and positive effects of job satisfaction and work meaningfulness on internal brand commitment.

    Sustainability and internal branding: investigating perceptions of employees in industrial markets2015Ingår i: Book of Abstracts from the 10th Global Brand Conference of Brand, Identity and Corporate Reputation SIG, Academy of Marketing, 2015, 2015, s. 15-18Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The main purpose of this study is to investigate the relationships between employees’ perceptions of sustainability performance and their internal brand commitment in industrial markets. The study was conducted among employees holding top and middle management positions in industrial companies in Belarus. 238 responses were analyzed by using the independent samples t-test, and the K-means cluster analysis. ANOVA was utilized for evaluating the differences between the three identified clusters. The findings of this study indicate the presence of significant differences in perceptions of employees assigning various degrees of importance to sustainability in relation to their evaluations of company’s sustainability performance and the key determinants of internal brand commitment. Furthermore, the study assesses the profiles of three alternative clusters of employees characterized by various degrees of importance assigned to sustainability, and by different levels of internal brand commitment. The study proposes practical recommendations for marketing managers and HR managers on how to utilize internal branding for enhancing awareness of employees about the importance of sustainability, and for facilitating positive perceptions about sustainability performance of their respective companies.

    Between you and I: A portfolio theory of the circular economy2021Ingår i: Ecological Economics, ISSN 0921-8009, E-ISSN 1873-6106, Vol. 190, artikel-id 107190Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    By using resources more circularly, individual resources users hope to contribute to a more eco-efficient and sustainable resource use. Whether resources are used sustainably is decided at the macro-level, raising the question if, as well as how, the efficient and circular use of resources at the micro-level adds up to their efficient and circular use on the macro-level. Currently, the link between the circular use of resources at micro- and macro-levels is under-theorized. The symbiotic relationship between individual resource users enables a reduction in the resource use at the macro-level. In this conceptual paper, we argue that an analogous link exists in finance where desirable investment return is linked to undesirable investment risk, and that via the generation of efficient portfolios, individual risks are at least partially diversified away. As our main contribution, we theorize the circular economy, both in its perfect and imperfect forms, using modern portfolio theory. Our theory identifies the drivers of circular resource use and shows under which conditions individual resource use contributes to the circular use of resources.

    Value creation and the circular economy: a tale of three externalities2022Ingår i: Journal of Industrial Ecology, ISSN 1088-1980, E-ISSN 1530-9290, Vol. 26, nr 5, s. 1690-1700Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    By using resources more efficiently, resource users help to overcome the inherent resource scarcity on “spaceship earth.” One strategy in this context is to close resource loops and to use resources circularly. With fewer resources wasted, a more circular use of resources should also increase the efficiency of resource use and create more value. However, when resource users aim for a greater degree of efficiency, inadvertently they might contribute to resources being used less rather than more circularly and, consequently, less instead of more efficiently. We show how to assess the value that is created by the efficient use of resources for the case of linear and circular resource use. This allows us to identify three distinct types of positive externalities related to the circular use of resources: (1) systemic static externalities; (2) idiosyncratic dynamic externalities; and (3) systemic dynamic externalities. We describe how the value created by these externalities can be assessed and argue that they need to be considered when evaluating environmental resource use.

    The us in reUSe: Theorizing the how and why of the circular economy2022Ingår i: Business Strategy and the Environment, ISSN 0964-4733, E-ISSN 1099-0836, Vol. 31, nr 6, s. 2741-2753Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite considerable interest into circular economy, it remains undertheorized and underdeveloped. In response, this article advances circular economy by drawing on two theories to explain how firms can increase the circularity of resource use and why they are incentivized to do so. We refer to Modern Portfolio Theory to link the resource use of individual companies to the resource use of a group of firms. In doing so, we show how—and under which conditions—resource use decreases when circulated at the group level. We then refer to principles from evolutionary biology to explain why it is beneficial to structure resource flows at the group level, even when the resource-reducing effect might not materialize for individual firms. In combining both perspectives we challenge entrenched ways of “doing” circular economy: We offer an integrated theoretical approach that helps inform managers' decision-making on circular resource use in practice.

    Understanding and managing coopetition for sustainability: process and outcomes2021Doktorsavhandling, sammanläggning (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [sv]

    Forskare lyfter fram de potentiella vinsterna med samarbete mellan konkurrenter för att främja hållbarhet, men det saknas både teoretiska och empiriska studier. Syftet med denna avhandling är att öka förståelsen för"coopetition för hållbarhet", som jag definierar som "ett fenomen mellan företag där aktörer från samma bransch samtidigt samarbetar och konkurrerar med avsikt att uppnå ekologiska, ekonomiska och sociala fördelar". Genom att undersöka processen och utfallet av coopetition för hållbarhet utvecklar jag flera analytiska verktyg för att systematiskt utforska den coopetitiva interaktionen i syfte att nå hållbarhetsmål och visar att coopetition för hållbarhet ger upphov till många sammanvävda paradoxala spänningar. Vidare visar jag hur ett anta lorganiserings- och regleringsmekanismer används för att ta itu med dessa spänningar, mekanismer som kan medföra bättre hållbarhetsutfall.

    Denna avhandling består av sex, bifogade, artiklar (två konceptuella, två kvalitativa och två kvantitativa) som utforskar coopetition för hållbarhet i tre kontextuella miljöer (den svenska-, polska- och belarusiska bostadsbranschen). Sammantaget spänner artiklarna över flera teoretiska ramverk (paradoxteori, hållbar värde-teori, modern portföljteori) och olika metodologiska tillvägagångssätt (systemdynamik, fördjupad fallstudie, enkätstudie).Avhandlingens undersökningar visar att även om coopetition för hållbarhet är ett komplext och spänningsfyllt fenomen har det samtidigt stor potential för att främja hållbarhet i både teori och praktik. Jag bidrar till teori genom att generera nya insikter om: (i) 'coopetition för hållbarhets'-processen, vilket visar hur aktörer organiserar samarbete för hållbarhet och hur de reagerar på de paradoxala spänningar som de ofta upplever; (ii) utfallen av coopetition för hållbarhet, som jag systematiskt konceptualiserar och modellerar. Jag förslår även implikationer för praxis, för att hjälpa ledare att navigera i processen för coopetition för hållbarhet och för att förbättra dess ekonomiska, sociala och ekologiska utfall.

    Knotted paradoxes in eco-innovation: a double trap or two needs with one deed?2018Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Paradox theory has not yet considered how paradoxes interact when they are brought together. To explore such knotting we investigate coopetition for sustainability, when competitors collaborate to address environmental concerns. We use a case study of three examples of collaborative activities between housing companies in Belarus to display how these two paradoxes are knotted together. We find that coopetition brings less tension and is used as a means to address stronger sustainability tensions, enabling firms to partially achieve ‘two needs with one deed’. Based on our findings we suggest that how knotting appears is affected by the type of paradoxes involved, the strength and dynamics of their tensions, and their relationships to each other. We conclude with a call for more research particularly in more competitive settings and with other types of paradoxes.

    Knowledge sharing for corporate sustainability – a system dynamics approach2020Ingår i: Academy of Management Proceedings: Annual Meeting Proceedings: Virtual 2020, 2020Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Research is scarce on how competitors share knowledge with the intent to create balanced economic, social and environmental value. In this paper we conduct a single, in-depth case study and apply the System Dynamics approach to investigate how knowledge is shared and leveraged, as a system that evolves over time. In the developed model we identify causal loops that reinforce and hinder this system, including efforts both to work out, create and balance economic, social and environmental value. Based on the applied approach we suggest managerial mechanisms that could simultaneously regulate knowledge sharing interactions and balance sustainability demands.

    The knotted paradox of coopetition for sustainability: investigating the interplay between core paradox properties2023Ingår i: Industrial Marketing Management, ISSN 0019-8501, E-ISSN 1873-2062, Vol. 110, s. 31-45Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite the fact that many organizations must manage frequently multiple paradoxes in their operations, extant paradox studies have under-researched the phenomenon of a knotted paradox that emerges when actors navigate in conditions of contradicting demands, which stem from several paradoxes simultaneously. In this study, we explore the knotted paradox of coopetition for sustainability, a process in which competitors cooperate to address sustainability challenges, and examine the interplay between its intensity, balance, and outcome. The findings of a quantitative study conducted among organizational actors in the housing sector demonstrate that coopetition intensity has a significant yet complex impact on sustainability outcomes. In the relationship characterized by an inverted U-shaped curve, an increase in coopetition intensity and balance leads to an increase in sustainability outcomes, but only until a specific limit, after which sustainability outcomes decrease with further intensification of coopetition. The findings indicate that coopetition balance and sustainability balance do not have a significant relationship. The study provides insights for managers on how coopetition in different conditions can contribute to corporate sustainability. The study demonstrates that coopetition and sustainability can be knotted successfully, although the intensity of competing demands and the balance between them need to be cautiously managed.

    Coopetition for sustainability: Between organizational benefit and societal good2020Ingår i: Business Strategy and the Environment, ISSN 0964-4733, E-ISSN 1099-0836, Vol. 29, s. 827-837Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Sustainable development requires coopetition, that is, the cooperation of organiza-tions that compete at the same time. Research on coopetition for sustainability issparse. From a sustainability perspective, coopetition contributes to sustainabilitywhen it makes a positive contribution on the societal level. Existing research oncoopetition however focuses on organizational outcomes. In this paper, we link orga-nizational and societal outcomes of coopetition. We show that for the simple case oftwo coopting firms and an economic and an environmental dimension, there are 51different combinations that make a positive contribution to sustainability. All butone of these combinations consist of a mix of positive and negative outcomes. Weidentify four types of trade‐offs that can occur in coopetition for sustainability andthat point to different pathways of achieving sustainability.

    Making paradoxical tensions salient: Changing information not people2019Konferensbidrag (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Many firms are confronted with paradoxical tensions. For firms to recognize tensions these have to become salient. Prior research suggests that environmental and cognitive factors render latent tensions salient and argues implicitly that where environmental factors are complex, paradoxical cognition is required. In this paper we present the general model of rendering paradoxical tensions salient where developing cognition is only one of three possible strategies. We formulate the general condition of rendering latent tensions salient: it is possible only when information fits both a described situation (environment) and actors’ cognition. Based on this condition we introduce the other two alternative ways to make tensions salient, i.e. simplification of the information and simplification of the situation, that have been overlooked by scholars. Using the doubly complex application of coopetition for sustainability we show how the strategy of simplification of the information can be implemented to recognize and systemize paradoxical tensions.

    Sustainable value creation of nine countries of the Baltic region: value, changes and drivers2015Ingår i: Journal of Cleaner Production, ISSN 0959-6526, E-ISSN 1879-1786, Vol. 108, s. 637-646Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The Baltic region comprises countries of great diversity. They have in common that they all face the challenge to combine a sound economic development with the stewardship for their environmental, social and economic resources. Using the Sustainable Value approach we first analyse their overall sustainability performance. We then further develop the value drivers of Sustainable Value to enhance the explanatory power of our analysis. We find that there are significant differences between countries. We show both conceptually and using our examples that there is no unambiguous link between economic growth, environmental and social stewardship and the efficient use of resources.

    Abstract [en]

    Environmental sustainability is becoming a key driver for business innovation and new business models. First movers can exploit business opportunities and gain a competitive advantage. Policy makers can foster sustainable development. But what are the roles of policy makers in a transition economy like Belarus? And how aware are Belarusian companies of this new opportunity? In developed markets the business case for sustainability is relevant from a theoretical and practical perspective. Transition economies have many additional economic challenges and many executives perceive sustainability requirements to be a burden and too expensive. What kind of regulation and incentives are available for CEOs, policy makers and other stakeholders in Belarus to improve innovative processes for sustainable development? Based on survey results and empirical analysis we identify the main obstacles that hinder sustainability orientation in Belarus: weak awareness among key stakeholders regarding the potential benefits of and incentives for a sustainable business model; the absence or failure of environmental social and governance factors in strategic and operative plans; and uncertainty over how future economic policy can contribute to sustainable development. Experience from developed countries shows that a possible way to achieve high innovative activities for Belarus and other transition countries is to promote sustainable business models combined with regulatory measures. The essential benefits and measures of this transformation are also considered in the paper.

    Sustainability performance in the Baltic Sea region2016Ingår i: Land use policy, ISSN 0264-8377, E-ISSN 1873-5754, Vol. 57, s. 489-498Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The importance of sustainable development issues requires the engagement of all stakeholders in decision-making processes, as well as developing tactics and strategies. The complexity of this task increases on regional and international levels, where a huge amount of interests intersect or even contradict each other. To develop proper policy measures towards sustainability, it is essential to use appropriate performance assessment. Regardless of the existence of some macro estimation methods, vast gaps in practical use still remain. In this paper, a set of methods for assessing the sustainability performance of countries is outlined and discussed. The main advantages and weaknesses of the prevalent approaches are considered. Using available statistical data from open sources, sustainability performance assessment in countries within the Baltic Sea Region in the years 2005–2010 is carried out according to different methods and discussed, thus obtaining the profile of sustainability performance for countries in the Baltic Sea Region. The results of the calculations may be used for sharing with communities, detecting sustainability gaps in the countries’ economies, substantiating national and regional sustainable development strategies, and analyzing the investment attractiveness of the given region.

    Dealing with knotted paradoxes: A system dynamics approach to coopetition for sustainability2020Konferensbidrag (Övrigt vetenskapligt)
    Abstract [en]

    Organizational members are likely to face more than one paradox simultaneously. In order to conceptualize how paradoxes are knotted together and influence each other, paradox research needs to better account for dynamics and integrative aspects. In this paper we introduce the System Dynamics approach which we apply to coopetition for sustainability. Via an in-depth case study of a large-scale Swedish project to create a brand new, sustainable residential area, we are able to trace how the two paradoxes (coopetition and sustainability) influence each other but also take turns in dominating the processual unfolding. Our study contributes by developing and illustrating an approach to conceptualizing knotted paradoxes in general and coopetition for sustainability in particular.

    Why the market value of residential premises and the costs of its purchase differ: the examples of Belarus and Poland2018Ingår i: Land use policy, ISSN 0264-8377, E-ISSN 1873-5754, Vol. 71, s. 530-539Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study is to investigate features of transaction costs (fees and taxes) regarding real estate deals and to analyze transaction costs in the real estate market in emerging and established economies in order to research the link between the extent of market development and transaction costs. The authors’ methodological approach to estimation of transaction costs consists of qualitative and quantitative stages and is based on descriptive, normative and statistical information, which allows estimation and comparison of transaction costs as well as their structure and sources of occurrence by types. The two cases were chosen for practical implementation of the method: a transition economy of Belarus and a relatively established market economy of Poland. In order to measure transaction costs, the authors use the example of a residential property in order to provide a comparable basis for further analysis. Application of the method to the most prevalent pattern of real estate deals shows sufficient comparability of transaction costs (ca. 2.5%) and a slight difference (ca. 4%) caused by the absence of transaction tax in Belarus.

    Institutional pressures and the adoption of responsible management education at universities and business schools in Central and Eastern Europe2023Ingår i: Business Ethics, the Environment and Responsibility, ISSN 2694-6416, Vol. 32, nr 4, s. 1575-1591Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Business schools, and universities providing business education, from across the globe have increasingly engaged in responsible management education (RME), that is in embedding social, environmental and ethical topics in their teaching and research. However, we still do not fully understand the institutional pressures that have led to the adoption of RME, in particular concerning under-researched regions like Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). Hence, we undertook what is to our knowledge the most comprehensive study into the adoption of RME in CEE to date (including 13 countries: Belarus, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovenia and Ukraine). We find that, with regard to RME, isomorphic pressures seem to shape teaching and research in different ways, which suggests that the idea of a holistic approach to RME, promoted by, for example, the Principles of Responsible Management Education (PRME), needs to be revisited; rather, different trajectories of organizational engagement may emerge for each principle. As a contribution to institutional theory, we discuss how a highly fragmented organizational field—like RME with its multiple dimensions—impacts on notions of actor centrality, where actors achieve centrality with regard to some dimensions of the field but fail to do so for others. In particular, we found that the European Union holds centrality in the area of RME teaching, but not in RME research. Our findings thus suggest that the concept of field centrality needs further clarification.

    Taking stock of responsible management education in Central and Eastern Europe2023Ingår i: The International Journal of Management Education, ISSN 1472-8117, E-ISSN 2352-3565, Vol. 21, nr 3, artikel-id 100889Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Corporate social responsibility, business ethics and sustainability – often bracketed under responsible management education (RME) – are topics that are increasingly adopted by universities and business schools across the globe. However, one region where our knowledge regarding the extent of RME is still limited is Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). Bringing together a team of scholars (currently or formerly) based throughout the region, we were able to conduct the largest survey to date of RME practices in the CEE region, covering 13 countries. Our findings suggest that, at a declarative level, RME is very much present at CEE universities and business schools, in particular in terms of teaching. However, a pro-RME rhetoric is not necessarily backed-up with substance; in particular, a lack of financial resources was identified as the major barrier to greater engagement with RME practices. We also observed a gap between commitment to RME in teaching versus in research, which could be a potential source of concern as teaching should be informed by research; otherwise faculty remain dependent on imported teaching materials. We contribute to strengthening the RME agenda in management education by discussing the implications of our findings for individual faculty, business school leaders, governments and international associations of management education.

    Cross‐sectoral collaboration in business model innovation for sustainable development: Tensions and compromises2022Ingår i: Business Strategy and the Environment, ISSN 0964-4733, E-ISSN 1099-0836, Vol. 31, nr 1, s. 445-463Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Cross-sectoral collaboration is argued to be vital for business model innovation for sustainability and the tension-filled choices it involves but brings its own complexities. We therefore investigate how institutional logics and power affect the interests and dependencies of City planners and real-estate developers involved in developing a business model for sustainable mobility. Through analyzing how partners deal with tension-filled choices regarding business model elements, we develop a model to explain how compromises are made in partnerships characterized by conflicting interests coupled to strong interdependencies. We finish by cautioning that conflicting interests and power characteristics may delimit the potential for such cross-sectoral collaborations to contribute to sustainable development in sectors where public actors are used to rely on their authority.

    Some Aspects of Local Real Estate Taxes as an Instrument of Land Use Management2016Ingår i: Real Estate Management and Valuation, ISSN 1733-2478, Vol. 24, nr 3, s. 93-105Artikel i tidskrift (Refereegranskat)
    Abstract [en]

    Economic and financial instruments are a very important group of tools for supporting local entrepreneurship. The broadest group among them are local taxes. Real estate taxes are considered by local governments, on the one hand, as a tool for promoting the effective development of real estate, and on the other, as a reliable source of income to the local budget.

    The functioning of every tax system can be analyzed by applying different criteria. The most typically evaluated criteria are economic efficiency, equity, transparency, collectability, and revenue production. These criteria are often in conflict with one another, one of the reasons for this fact being, according to the research conducted by the authors of this paper, the base of taxation. It is generally believed that the value of real property is a much more reliable tax basis than its size.

    It was our intention to verify this opinion. Having reviewed the available literature and thoroughly analyzed the Polish and Belarussian real estate tax systems, we concluded that the first of the two systems have no definite advantages over the other. For example, the ad valorem tax better stimulates intensive use of land, but, on the other hand, may negatively affect its sustainable development. The main reason for this fact is the specificity of real estate as the object of taxation. The object of taxation exists regardless of its economic state and performance, thus taxes have to be paid whether or not there is any income or profit. Given the nature and possible functions of real estate and the priorities of local authorities, the concept of just taxation is also socially relative.
